Agenda – A new take on notes App Reviews

0 add

A Product With a Future, I Think

I was initially skeptical: note-taking is a crowded field and I have generally ended up disappointed, or at least underwhelmed with new products in that genre. Although it doesn’t have all of the features I would like in a note-taking app, it is new, very attractive, and seems to be headed in the right direction. The developer's responsiveness to its community is impressive. Aligning text-centric note-taking with calendar/dates makes a lot of sense to me. So far, Agenda doesn’t try to be a “do everything” app, so it doesn’t embed a lame drawing tool, nor does it pose as a general-purpose writing tool. It has some similarities with Bear, which I think will be its primary competition, although I haven’t found Bear to be any better at taking notes than any of the myriad of markdown editors. Agenda’s premium feature set includes export and import to and from markdown, so if it doesn’t thrive, my notes will be safe. I’m not convinced that Agenda's pricing model is any better than a subscription. Indeed, if they end up charging $25 every year for new features, that will be more expensive than Bear’s $15 per subscription. My four-star rating is based on accepting their promise that they will release an iOS app this year, and that the “premium feature” charge I paid for will cover that, too. This is important for me because I am much more likely to spend most of my time using that iOS version. If their iOS version matches the functionality of the current macOS version, I am definitely hooked.

10 mins in, and i love it

Easy to work with, very intuitive, already feeling better about getting my life organized, thanks!

I look forward to trying it when iOS arrives

I poked around, but a note taking app must be multi-device. I’m looking forward to seeing how well this performs, specifically with iOS.


Don’t make the same mistake that I and others have made (according to other reviews here) of purchasing (or according to their verbiage—“unlocking”) the premium features for $24.99 because in fact, you are paying $24.99 for absolutely nothing. It’s been 2 weeks that agenda received payment for my account in order to enable the premium features; however my account is still running as the free version. False advertising on top of just taking your money for absolutely no product/no service.

I had high hopes, but not as it is today

I wanted it to replace Evernote, but I find the Agenda system inflexible. I find myself spending more time pushing buttons than focusing on what I have to do for the day. There’s also some UI that’s not intuitive. I’ll just stick to Evernote until something better comes along.

Great concept, very buggy in significant ways

I tried this app and turns out it perfectly aligns with how I want to keep information organized for my work projects (and I've tried a lot of apps, always going back to plain notes). This can be lifechanging for me, when most of the bugs and performance issues are fixed. Now to the reason why 2 stars: it's very unpolished. :( * The sidebar glitches sometimes, e.g. you would add a category and it wouldn't appear until you restart the app. * It is very hard to figure out where the notes are clickable to be selected, dragged, or edited (title/text). The click zones are generally very frustrating, and catch you off guard, you always get not what you intended. * However, most of the bugs are in the text editing itself. Backspacing may or may not delete indents depending on situation. Text styles are preserved/reset from one line to another in an unpredictable way. For example, you would put a word in `backticks` and from that point other text will also be monospaced. * The biggest headache is undo. It's really frustrating. When you press cmd+z, first of all, the stuff that gets undone is unpredictable. Sometimes the whole note is cleared, sometimes a paragraph is gone, and sometimes it's just the last action. Second of all, there is a delay between you pressing cmd+z and anything actually happening. During that delay you think nothing happened and press it again, at which point you realize you triggered multiple undos, which means be ready for absolutely any random outcome. Redo is just as wonky. At this point I'm pretty sure that once all of that is fixed I will be happy to start buying new features every year, because I really want this app. However, it's very hard to use right now, and believe me I'm trying. Update: I'm bumping this to 3 after the dev response, because I really want this app to succeed. I think undo might've also been the cause of various "monospace stuck" kind of issues. After undoing, it might be in weird state where typing further would preserve wrong font. I agree that it's hard to reproduce, I haven't tried. The sidebar not having my category happened once, I added a new category and was trying to create new projects in it, they would also naturally not appear anywhere (to be clear: I made sure to look for a collapsed category, it was not there). After restart I saw my category and a bunch of untitled projects in it. Hard to reproduce as well. As far as other undo glitches: I was writing about undo in the latest version, so it still needs work. I will help reproduce if I find time, but right now pretty swamped.

Great Idea - But no iPad App is deal breaker

As the developer mentioned he used to do, I end up using OmniFocus to take notes. Sometimes I take notes using the the Apple Notes app and then update OmniFocus after. I love the idea of this app. However, I tend to use my iPad in meetings. The lack of an iPad app is a deal killer. I’ll stick with Apple Notes/OmniFocus for now.

Pay $24 to pin a note to the top of screen?

Pretty app, but not a big fan of the subscription model? I guess you’d call it a subscription model? I simply wanted to pin a note to the top of my window but it brings up a buy option. Seems strange to me. Maybe I don’t need all these features and should just keep using Textmate. I want to see apps survive on the app store just wish there was a way to do it without nickle and diming for really basic features. No hate to the dev, just not the app for me.

Very good at what it does, but needs support for images

I really like the concept, and I have a number of project logs which I’d like to use this for, but for really planning, tracking and developing my ideas I sometimes need to embed images, to illustrate my ideas in some way, or existing ideas from someone else. Not having this is a deal-breaker for me. 🙁 Currently I’m using TextEdit with a separate log file for each project, and I’m manually typing in the dates of each entry. I’m willing to pay for something that will do more than I can already do with TextEdit, but I’m not willing to sacrifice the functionality I already have and need. Occasionally I also need to type in or import a table of data. When I do this in TextEdit I take advantage of its ability to set tab stops, and then adjust the widths of the different columns of data according to the length of the numbers or words that go into each column. When I tried to do this in Agenda, it interpreted every tab key as an indication that it should increase the left indent, even though I was typing the tab button AFTER a word, and trying to get to my next column. My conclusion is that tables just aren’t supported as yet. This isn’t quite as important as images, but it’s still important. On the positive side, I really like the simple way in which lists and even nested lists are supported: it figures out what you’re trying to do, and helps you do it, which allows you to concentrate more on getting your ideas down. Very nice, and not something I’ve found anywhere else! Although if it’s not going to allow me to change the format of the number, then it should at least default to alternating between numbers & letters. So that list item 2.a.1.c would point to a very specific list item. Another thing on my wish list is an ability to synch my project log files to my iPad or iPhone, so I’m glad to hear that an iOS version of Agenda is in the works. Thanks and best wishes to the developer team.


Like the concept ... But I have a lot of potential notes - to track development projects. I'd like the option to simply see them listed, among other views, and filterable by "tag" or category. Only basic info should show including the title or subject heading, maybe tags, but not the detail. The current "list" view has far too much information as a basic oveview. Also what about note templates? I don't want to have to reinvent a particular (my) standard note form each time it's needed. Am I missing something here?? Keep up the good work ... 4-stars once that list view appears, and templates.

Transitioning from plain text to Agenda

TL;DR: Agenda looks like a great replacement for a mostly-working plain text notes workflow I’ve been taking notes in plain-text Markdown for several years now. The routine is simple: 1. Open my Markdown text editor (TextMate these days) 2. Type ‘#’, a space, and the date and title of the meeting - ‘# 2018-04-06 - Meeting with Chad’ 3. Copy that whole line, minus the ‘#’ prefix, and hit “Save” 4. Select my “_Meeting Notes” folder 5. Paste the title into the file name, and replace “.txt” witn “.md” 6. Now edit my meeting notes as desired This keeps things organized, but is a lot of steps for every meeting. Invariably I end up skipping the save-as step if I’m rushed in a meeting, figuring I’ll get to it later, but never do, and now I have a bunch of “Untitled” documents with scattered notes open in my editor. And, if I have any todo items for myself, they are recorded, but not integrated with anything else so a portion of them invariably get lost. Agenda allows me to type in Markdown (yeah, it isn’t Markdown underneath, but still, my fingers never leave the keyboard while I’m typing, and that’s the point of MD), and export to markdown if I want to. In Agenda I have multiple categories - Work, Home, etc - and multiple projects in each. For instance, I have my “Activity Log” under “Work” which I fill in at the end of the day to capture what I spent time on that day, and any significant accomplishments, which feeds into the end-of-week timesheet and OKR updates (always a chore previously). In meetings when I have an action item for myself, I just type “@me” and it gets tagged as such (and I can search for notes with action items). Notes can be tied to a specific meeting (not just the date) and also to a project, keeping them well organized. Best of all, I can import all my old Markdown-format text file notes for further categorization in Agenda (which I have done for ongoing projects), making them all formatted as originally intended in Agenda, and available for searching, etc. This looks like the notetaking app to beat right now. The “premium” features model is a really nice addition: all premium features released between now and a year from now I get to use forever; if a feature is released 366 days from now, I won’t get it, but at any point in the future can purchase it (and all other features released for the upcoming year) for a second year-of-premium purchase. Seems like a great “subscription” model which keeps the devs incentivized to bring out big new features (hopefully not 13 months apart …) *and* allows those of us who continue to use the product to continue to support their efforts (or not, if we don’t see the new features we want). Genius, IMHO.

Great idea and lots of potential

I just found out about the app recently through Substraction blog and I was interested in trying it out. I’m still figuring out to use it best but I’m super excited about what it has to offer! The only missing feature for me is Reminders/Notifications but it seems that the developers are working on it based on the comments here.

Love It!

This replaces what I have been trying to do with OneNote. I need the iPad version. How much longer? Thanks!!

Downloaded because of Dev

Tl;dr The app does everything you want in an planner type app and the dev seems to be quite supportive of their program and user input. Not gonna lie, I’m not the most organized person on the planet. Another fun fact, this is the first Mac that I have ever owned and used. I was looking on the app store for some apps to help me organize my life and found that there are a ton of them out there. What drew me to this app was a) it is free, b) it seems to combine the things I need most in my organization (notes, callendar, and a clever hierarchy), and c) I saw that the Dev politely commented on negative comments without being hostile or defensive about it. I’m new to this world of computing, so my mind may change over time, but it is refreshing to see a dev who stands by his product but still is able to take and answer critisism in a polite way.

Beautiful Focused App

I am really enjoying using this app for my note taking and project planning. It is a beautifully designed app, it looks very similar to Things, which I also use for my task management. I am currently using the free version while I evaluate its long term place in my workflow. So far I have not encountered any issues. I use it as an alternative to Pages for keeping notes that don’t require any elaborate layout customizing that would require a more fully featured word processor. I like the simple layout and way that notes are organized and have the integration with the calendar app to be very useful. Look forward to future updates and the iOS version. I am eagerly anticipating the iOS version which will make this much more valuable to me. Once that is here I will be more than happy to purchase the full version to help support further development and improvement of this already fine application. Thanks!

I hate to ask

I tried it or 30 seconds and found it will help me greatly with some engineering projects. Notes for a date and assigning it right there is very nice. My new home based goto. now, the question I have is, and I hate to say it, is it available for PC? lol. Just don’t have a mac at work.

I'm so ready...

... for something better than Evernote. And I can totally see Agenda being that app. Be proud of yourselves. You've made a better note-taking platform than Evernote. Excellent job! There's just two things holding me back from committing to it. 1. I have a team. My team needs access to my notes and I need access to theirs - in a simple manner. Evernote excelles at this sharing concept. 2. Some of my team are unable to install new apps (for a variety of reasons). A web-based note-taking app is essential for us.

Great Organization & Concept, But Hard to Use.

I love this app. That’s why I’m gonna write this review about all the things that can be FIXED and ADDED, to make it even better. :) This app is great and I would definitely recommend getting the free version, but here are the few things that need to be fixed for an enhanced user experience: - Text customization tools only show up when you click on a very particularly small dot, and has to be done for every line of text. Would be more helpful if it was on the top bar like most other text editing apps. Also there should be more options, such as highlighting and bullet points. - You can’t add charts nor images- both features that the apple Notes app (although the chart function is only possible through copy & paste) are able to do. - A suggestion: it would be incredibly helpful if— in addition to being able to connect the google calendar app— to be able to sync the REMINDERS app into this app! - Also, there should be an option to “collapse” notes so that only their titles show- for organization’s sake. With all this, this app will be suuuuperb.

Looking Forward to iOS

I am not going to be able to fully integrate it into my workflow yet, but since the app is stunning, I am really looking forward to it. To get a quick glimpse of how beautiful the app is click on the link for the website and watch the “show me how” video. So far the UI is a masterpiece.

Changing the way I work

I don’t think I’ve ever written an app review before, but Agenda is actually changing the way I work. The ability to link notes to my meetings, link notes to each other, create dynamic to-do lists that connect to the relevant information…I’ve felt more productive in the days since downloading it than I’ve felt in months.

This makes you pay a yearly fee absolutely no reason.

The app seems functional enough. Theres nothing I found special or anything that warranted special consideration, and that includes a needless mandatory yearly fee. You must pay, at the time of this writing, 25$ once every year to keep your notes. So far I have seen no utility or tool that allows you to bulk download your notes should you elect to discontinue using this app. Maybe I’ve just been using apps and programs for too long. I’m not middle aged “yet" but I can say most of my life I’ve had a computer. Some applications deserve to be called SaaS, or Software as a Service. A simple note taking app on the Mac app store just like the dozens that came before it is not one of them. The problem with small apps that automatically subscribe to you is if you are at all a busy person with a standard credit card, you forget about fees that only rear their head once a year. There are plenty of free note apps that sync across devices and backup to iCloud that don’t have a yearly fee, let alone 25$. The functionality is here, but the price is not. Great marketing, pretty animated graphics… that’s what your subscription will be paying for. One star based on value with the hope that developers wise up and just charge for a new version of the software every few years.

Excited for this app

I’m looking forward to what’s in store for this app. I’ve been trying to find a way to use the apps that come standard on iOS devices and on the Mac in hopes to get them to all work together somehow. The theory is that I don’t have to rely on an outside company to keep my workflow going in the even they should be bought out or fold. Standard apps will always be there, you know? The biggest draw for me was the fact that this app allows you to link notes to your calendar and to a specific event. I needed this feature. It was the one thing I found lacking trying to make Notes, Reminders, and Calendar to work together so I could slowly move away from a standard planner. Trying this app out for a little bit has me think that this could work for me. I can easily see it replacing my current planning system once an iOS version is released. I’m excited to see where this is going and hope this will be around for a while!

Free to try- No brainer

I have had this for about a day but I will go ahead and throw out five stars atm due to it being free to try and an absolutely gorgeous app that has obvious basic functionality. I’ll update review. My first impression is that its one of those apps that, at its core, is easy to simply take notes, but has a great deal more functionality for those who want to utilize it. You can immediatly just take notes but then explore around the app to find neat and useful features. You can click on a note and that places it on your “Agenda,” which you can click on. It’s sounds simple, but its extremely effective. There are other features that I am playing around with now but need more time to determine their usefulness. I could see this app taking the place of my existing note-taking solutions on my Mac in time. It doesn’t do everything I need but it performs as advertised extremely well. Once it has an ios app, I can envision incorporating Agenda into my existing workflows. It has a neat introduction animation that "sort of" explains what the app is. It’s difficult to describe this app simply by saying its a note-taking app. The app has sample notes, which you can delete before you start using. My suggestion is to keep the sample notes because they do a great job of explaining just how you can use this app. I’d also suggest importing Apple notes since that will give you a great idea about the app functions, though, I’d suggest the developers add the ability to selectively import Apple notes and other file types like plain text docs. For example, I’d like to use Agenda for a project, then archive the project in Devonthink Pro Office when done and be able to import it back if I have to reopen the project, or use the old project as a template. I highly suggest trying this app out. It’s beautiful in its execution and you can tell the developers really put a lot of thought and effort in creating it. It’d be nice to know when the ios app is going to be released and if the 24.99 yearly subscription for Pro features would cover that as well. Also, it seems like the sky is the limit with this app. There are still plenty of features that I am sure people will want that they will introduce but since it already has an import/export function, I am comfortable putting data in here since I can easily get it out if I have issues.

looks promising... [edited]

This thing looks nice, has many power features. I like trying out notes and todo apps. I'd be willing to give it a real go, but without a companion ipad app, it's a non-starter. If we could have mobile versions, I'd pay for a year to give this a shot. Is there a way to paste images, add "tables" like the native mac/ios notes app? It would be great if a paid app were a superset of features. [edit] Ah - I should have read the other review in which the developer said an iOS version is coming. When that arrives, I'll come back and try this out again.

Awsome noting app

This noting application is awsome and has a beautifull view and i really like it But there is one problem in this app and that is doesn’t have good security like put password or touch id for the notes

Love it

Exactly what I needed. I was actually trying to do this on paper- with many little notebooks for different projects, but then they’d get misplaced or i’d forget about some and i had to calender things separtely. I thought I still wanted to use paper and pencil until I found this. This app is perfect for tracking many projects and ideas at once while keeping them organized and unforgotten. It also looks better and is way more affordable than trello, too. trello’s been good for groups in offices I’ve worked at, but this feels way better for me as an individual. And while you can write notes on trello, this makes it easier to organize and see them cause they aren’t just comments on tasks. Also, I thought I wanted to have it connect to my google calendar, where I keep everything else, but then I realized I would have to be connected to the internet at all times to see it, so it’s actually better that it’s connecting to my apple calender app. (so long as it uptates it all to my phone, once the phone version comes out.

Its great but

It’s great but It needs to be available for all platforms; play store and apple products as well. I wish it could also connect to Icoud and GDrive as well

Perfect but…..

its a great app. BUT please bring it to iOS asap. I cant look at my agenda when I am on the road or in a meeeting.

No way to format text

I am new to this app and I like this app as we can consolidate all notes at one place instead of having separate text files. BUT I don’t see any option to format text like change font size, color, type etc. All it can do is bold italics, underline, heading style etc. - What if I want to highlight few lines with a different color - How can I change font size of some notes vs others - How can I change the spacing between lines when I am writing long notes? Default font size makes long notes look like long paragrahs and have to scroll though everything. If I want to have different font for different notes or lines of text there seem to be no provision for this. Am I missing something here? Pleae help.

A good start, lots of potential

I initially downloaded this app for use at work, hoping it could address some of the challenges I have with OneNote and Evernote … while the calendar integration is amazing (wow, thank you, didn’t even realize I wanted that!), Agenda is not syncing with MacOS Calendar (and I work in a Microsoft Exchange environment). This one feature dictates how likely it is that I would switch over from OneNote/Evernote. If that gets fixed, I would migrate to Agenda … although I have not seen a mass note-import feature in Agenda to make this as painless as possible (I’ll keep looking in case I missed it). The one other feature that I wish SOMEONE would incorporate into a note-taking app (come on, Agenda peeps — you can be the first!) is a feature that allows you to tag items discussed in the current meeting that need to go on the agenda for a future meeting, so that when you plan those future meetings, those agendas (perhaps a template is needed so that you could start as many future draft agendas as needed?) are pre-populated with the items previously designated for follow-up. I am in charge of the topics for a senior-level WEEKLY meeting. This one feature would shave hours off of my prep time each week, especially time lost trying to keep track of the dozens of things this team discusses and makes decisions about. For now, I will probably use this more for personal projects and meetings that live in Google Calendar. Just downloaded the latest update; excited to see what’s new. Thank you for your work so far!

Its good, and they are always improving it.

I’ve come here to update my review. The last two updates that came very quickly in the past month have really fixed a lot of the little issues i previously had with this app. The developer is very responsive to the in app feedback and followed up with me informing me week later they fixed the specific issues I ran into and told them about while using the app. Its a good foundation and I’m excited to see what they build on top of it going forweard. If this past month is any indication they will be building out a bunch of fixes and features very quickly. I highly recomend this app.

beautiful design and function

I just downloaded this today and haven’t really put it through its paces and seeing if I can integrate it with my OmniFocus-based system. But so far I’m very impressed with the UI and functionality and love the simple organizational logic.


I never thought I needed it but the app just shows how much you are missing. A must have for anyone who wants to stay organized in life.

Life-changing app, but needs more syncing

So, quick and to the point: this app makes life with meetings easier. I can tie prep and follow-up notes to meetings very easily. Keeping context is a breeze. However, I have other ancilliary note apps that I need to be able to sync with. This includes deltas in Apple Notes, and Evernote. I also need the ability to tie PDFs in so I can just take a photo of hand-written notes taken in meetings. A mobile app would be good, too, but that's not as important to me. Paper is my preferred mobile platform for notes mid-meeting.

The idea is good but there are problems

Problems: * The app keeps crashing * When you copy the conten of a note and paste to Google Docs the formatting is terrible

awesome but...

It’s an awesome app. I didn’t gave it the 5 stars nor buying it the premium just for the reason that it didn’t work on iPad and iphone as well. When that happens for sure 5 stars and premium will be bought inmediately. Any chances that will happen in the future?

Read this before you consider “upgrading"

I just took this app for a significant test drive. This is an un-finished, product. The "team" is two people who clearly spend more time and money on WHAT you see rather than WHAT you get. There have been MANY requests for very simple updates, and while you can see these two individuals spending a great deal of time replying to every comment under five stars both here and on their site, we have yet to see an update where they implement the basic functionality it lacks. I assume the App Store placement is due to crowd or parent funding. Here are my qualms… – Okay, so the name of the app is “Agenda”, yet to add an event to your calendar, you must upgrade to “Premium”. – Clearly the developer forgot about the Mac Share menu, where you can simply right click and send the selected content wherever you want, whether that be a calendar or note app. They have not re-written the functionality of Google Calendar or I-Cal. The name of the event is what you write in the field. – They use misleading language to reference the calendar upgrade. It is simply a google calendar widget. It has absolutely NOTHING to do with the content of the notes. So, if you want to create an event in your own calendar with a title that you create, you can upgrade and they will put a widget in there. Thats IT. At first I thought that the name of the note would sync to the title of the event and the body to the notes section of google, but NO. So that means the notes title, content and any tasks you have written have nothing to do with their calendar integration. – This focus on past, present and future? ITS A DIARY. – Basic text formatting shortcuts works throughout, but there is no formatting menu – you cannot highlight – you cannot change the colors of your text – You only have access to preformatted styles rather, NO fonts and definitely no access to system fonts. – NO attachments or images, inline or links. When they do add this feature it will be in two stages. First local links and then inline images (I guess a year from now) So you cannot drag an image in there, and eventually, when they do allow it, it will be a local link rather than seeing it. – NO integrations – no tables – no chrome or safari extension to save content – and definitely no sending screenshots or images since the app cannot handle it. – no columns. – no mac menu bar item for “quick add" or anything like that – There are no "view" options (like evernote). – THERE IS NO IOS APP – Any text you copy and paste FROM the app will be stripped of its basic formatting, if you would like to preserve your “bullets" you must upgrade to “premium" for 24.99 – If you decide to Print or save as a PDF, they WATERMARK the document. To remove a watermark, you must upgrade. – “saved search” are also an upgraded feature... Im not sure if they are referencing bolean search operaters or just making your tags VISIBLE in the sidebar. – From the way they explain your purchase, you will have access to all future features for free, which implies that any additional features for those that do not “upgrade" now will be extra. – The free version of evernote is more full featured. At first I was very excited about this app, but I find it to be very pretentious to even consider charging money for such an unfinished product. This app should be in Beta NOT on the app store, and if it is on the app store, it should be FREE until the customer is getting what they are paying for NOW. They charge for things that are NOT add-on’s, but functionality that is blocked. Meaning, they have gone out of their way to add a watermark to a pdf? So stripping that watermark is an add-on? I think not. Making copied text, plain text? That is not an add-on, that is delibrately removing a functionality (any formatted text pasted into a different app preserves its formatting), Unless its text editor. OH, but again, you can just right click, go to services, send to evernote or wherever else, and whatever you have highlighted has preserved its formatting. Just like this comment.

Great App and Idea

I would give it 5 stars and will when the ios version comes out. I hope when the ios version arrives it will support apple pencil ;-)

Great concept, needs improvements

I like the concept - it is odd that no one else have something similar. Seems so obvious in hindsight. It is now my default meetings planning and note-taking app. However, the current software is still a bit buggy and lacking a few key features. Critical bugs i. I cannot scroll down the calendar when I have many events in a single day. Basically the scroll in the calendar jumps back up immediately. ii. I cannot change the date on the right panel, or at the least, changing it does nothing to the events. Must-haves in future i. iOS app, ideally, an Android app too. ii. Shared projects iii. Code / syntax highlighting ala markdown.

Impressed with this app

I’m not sure what the complaints about font size were all about as I find the fonts perfectly acceptable but maybe they have been increased recently. This app is a smart approach to note taking and organizing. I would love to be able to see “todo items” listed in one place or at least a reminder for the note or the specific todo. I guess technically this could be done by adding a todo tag to each todo and then searching for the tag. I’ve found this handy for projects and as a “knowlege base” for collecting info.

Good so far

I’ve been using this for a few days now and I really like it as a note taking app. I have been using GoodNotes which is good for handwriting (and I’d love if when the Agenda ipad version is released, it has that capability) but is terrible for syncing. This is brilliant for syncing, and the internal formatting and so on are super helpful too. The developers are great at responding to feedback and keeping users informed of developments too, so it is a very promising app.

Just the App I have been looking for!

I have been searching for an app to fill out the gap I’ve been experiencing before between notes and Task Managers. This app seems to be one that is so promising that I purchased the premium right away to support the developper. So many possibilities with this attractive note-taking app. Although not perfect, yet the developpers are very much accomodating to Feature Requests and Problems encountered. (Look at the Updates to prove that!) I am still eagerly waiting for the ios counterpart. Overall amazing app! Satisfied user here!

Great concept

I really like the idea and the execution. Very refreshing and useful take on task management and notes. I bought the subscription in order to support the developers which have done a really good job. A few critical things that I’m missing: - The ability to assign different colors to tags and projects - iOS App (they’re working on it) - Android App (a must!) - A proper web client for access on non-mac computers Keep up the good work!

Gem of an idea

Love the intent behind Agenda. I really need the ability to include PDF documents in my agenda - basically the handouts associated with a meeting.

Neat idea, not useful without iOS version

Now-a-days any Mac calendar/note taking/task management application is useless if it does not have an iOS version for an iPhone and iPad. I like the general premise (but it does need to link with apps like "Things”), but I cannot use it at all without an iOS version… So, for now, two stars. Once the iOS version comes out, I’ll re-evaluate.

Looks shiny. End up with dissapointment.

The concept of this app is pretty shiny. It tries to connect documents thoughout timeline. But implementation has a spacey room to be better. I bought premimum purchase with high hope, but eventually dissapointed. * No inline image. For me, that is a serious deal breaker. * Text size is so monotone. I am fan of markdown base editors. But this one is not support markdown editing - only import and export. * Calendar integration is clumsy. It integrated with mac local calendar. So it's very slow to sync changed info. All in all, this app has still long way to go. But I do have hope that this app is gonna work out one day. I hope makers of the app will figure things out to make more usable app.

Great concept

I love the concept, which brings a new dimmension to note taking. I think this app will be very popular when it becomes more usable. In my opinion, it was released too soon. The app constantly crashed on me forcing me to abandon using it further. I’ll watch for updates and start using it again once the bugs are worked out. To the developers…Keep going. You’ve got a winner. Update to my previous review: The crashing issues seem to be fixed. Because of that I updated my rating to 4 starts. The developers seem to be very responsive and are good at communicating with customers that make suggestions. I’m really looking forward to watching this app evolve.


I wish this app was available on iPhone and iPad! It’s been cool so far, though.

Need iOS App ASAP!

The OSX version is really good. Will upgrade rating and even purchase premium when iOS version is here.

Has potential, lets see….

App is clean and fairly intutive, tracks things well—really like using it. But I’m going to ding it (especially as a g-mail calendar user), because the calender function is not free. Doesn’t make sense to make this a premium feature since you can always add discriptions to calender events. Meh.
